This is not a drill.

Janet Jackson just shared the first of her new material on Twitter: a sweet interlude called “Love.”

Just days after announcing a new album “Unbreakable” and supporting world tour, Miss Janet’s new music comes at a very exciting time as the music industry anticipates her badly-needed return.

The 49-year-old’s voice sounds rich and strong as she croons over a delicate piano backing and reflects on the support and love she’s received that carried her through darker times.

“I lived through my mistakes, it’s just a part of growing / and never for a single moment did I ever go without your love / you make me feel wanted, I want to tell you how important you are to me / and I, love.”

The 43-second clip is most likely the newest addition to Janet’s lengthy collection of interludes but could also very well be a clip of a full-length song.

Either way, it is so nice to hear her voice again and this just boosted my faith in “Unbreakable” a huge amount.

Side note: releasing this an hour after the other Queen of Pop Madonna’s video dropped? I see you, Janet.
